Volkova Sisters are a four piece band from Hungary now in England who borrowed their name from a cyberpunk novel by William Gibson. The “sisters” Gergely Kovacs, Daniel Sandor, Dalma Berger and Tibor Vangel found each other through a shared passion for dark and melancholic 80’s new-wave music. The Volkova Sisters have their very own compelling take on dark electronica with a sharper emphasis on industrial pop and adding their own twists of depth, breath an dynamism. Infused with the dark side of cold wave, the infinite deepness of their music touches the intuitive and sensual part of human soul. Their first EP Venus Robot has been released after their US- trip, including SXSW, in 2011 and after 3 EP (Venus Robot, Hope, Holiday) and 1 LP (Blood Shapes This Faith), they have been going strong ever since. The new Volkova Sisters album, “Slowin Away” is a vital step forward from their previous dark-tech melancholy guiding the listener through a warped and vibrating, lush and diverse music structure. The band is moving towards in electronica, this material is melting together techno, Gergely Kovacs's unmistakably distorted guitar sounds with Dalma Berger's eerie voice and Tibor Vangel's powerful drumming, creating a twisted, gloomy, leftfield pop which is meant to intoxicate your ears.
Terra Profonda formed in Budapest in September, 2012. The trio’s compositions consist of conventional songs inspired by the fertile lap of blues, jazz and folk music, mixed with improvisation and free musical processes, all twisted around visionary poems. As the group’s name suggests, the earth and an earthy approach to sound are crucial to their music. For want of a better phrase, their lyrical and musical compositions can be described as ‘dramatic blues’. The songs portray downtrodden sailors, swearing and rambling lovers, startled horses, scarred, berserk wayfarers, and mad, edgy Eastern-European family men among others, all spread out in the night like moths strung up on sheets, swarming in the world of Terra Profonda.
